101 ESPN’s Senior Spotlight shines on Kiersten Pruitt, a senior at Lindenwood University
Kiersten is a senior at Lindenwood University, where she majors in Dance and minors in Health and Wellness.
She has been a member of the Lionettes Dance team for all four years. This team has accomplished quite a bit since her freshman year. They made program history by earning the NDA College D2 Jazz National Championship in 2017, then earning a back to back jazz title in 2018, and finally earning the Lionettes’ first ever hip hop title in 2019.
Kiersten, now a senior captain, was looking forward to competing for a 4th straight national title at the NDA College Dance Team Championship in Daytona Beach, FL earlier this month. She and her fellow seniors were quite sad to end their dance team careers so abruptly and unfinished, but know that their legacy will remain for future Lionettes teams for years to come.
